As I was wandering, I ran across Margaret Atwood's website, O.W. TOAD, and found myself captured by a couple of quotes she has posted. I am not sure what exactly caught me or what they have in common, but I offer them for your consideration.

Interviewer: To what do you attribute your success?
Joan Sutherland: Bloody hard work, Duckie!

Charming villains have always had a decided social advantage over well-meaning people who chew with their mouths open.
— Miss Manners

I adore quotes. I have a stack of 3X5 cards collected through the years, as well as a dedicated file on my computer for current collections. I also have a few quote sites bookmarked, because you never know when they'll come in handy.

In case you're interested: Brainy Quote, The Quotations Page, Quoteland, The Quote Garden

I personally believe we developed language
because of our deep inner need
to complain.
